I grew my email list by over 15,000 using this social media challenge idea… and in today’s all-new AccessAlly tell-all post, I show you how you can too.
Many people have seen the popular 30 Day List Building Challenge that we’ve been running for the past few years… some people say it’s the best training on list building, and even better than many paid trainings they’ve purchased.
That warms my heart.
I’ve also noticed that many people who take the challenge decide they want to start their own “many day challenge” around their topic of expertise.
Maybe it’s a self-love challenge, a meditation challenge, a fitness challenge, or even a bust through your blocks challenge.
I’m all for it – and today I’m going to share with you exactly how we created our challenge, and how you can learn from our mistakes along the way… so that your challenge can help you build your email list with engaged participants and potentially help you sell more of your programs and offerings, too.

Everyone is unique.
So why do we market to everyone exactly the same?
With a personality quiz on your website, you can build a segmented email list that follows up with subscribers based on how they answer a few simple questions.
But designing these quizzes takes some thought. Luckily, I’ve got you covered with this in-depth quiz design guide!
In this how-to post, we’ll walk you through the steps to designing and then creating your opt-in quiz so it converts to more subscribers and more sales, too.
There's a reason people pay for courses: we value organized, simplified, and easy to absorb information.
And that's why we see that free online courses are so appealing. Because they offer so much more than just another blog post or download.
And because we place such a high value on courses, they're a veritable gold mine for the savvy entrepreneur in search of original list building ideas.
Feeling overwhelmed by optin options for your landing pages?
I hear you.
There's a lot of noise and almost too many choices in terms of landing page solutions… and of course, a lot of them like to claim to be the best option out there.
Because of this, we've had a lot of great conversations with other entrepreneurs about what it means to craft a landing page…and what type of tool you might want to look at to make your job easier.
One conversation in particular stands out pretty clear, when one of our clients shared that “I'm having a hard time understanding the difference between PopupAlly and LeadPages…Should you use both, or is just one enough?”
And that's a great question.
Because while PopupAlly Pro gives you the power to create opt-in forms (in addition to popups) anywhere on your site, LeadPages is a great one-stop-shop when it comes to easily building landing pages that convert.
So, is it a good idea to use PopupAlly Pro as a LeadPages alternative WordPress plugin… or should you use both?
Marketers love saying it: popups are powerful.
But I like to add: they can also be a total waste of your time.
It's not enough to have an exit intent popup plugin on your website and make something pretty to show your visitors. You have to be strategic, informed, and able to design a heckuva popup.
Because it's not enough to just catch the eye of the visitor with your popup: you want to convert them into followers and, eventually, loyal customers. For this, you only have a few short seconds…
There's something so freeing about adding just a little bit of rebellion to your business. After all, why settle for doing things the way everyone else is when you can class it up and do it better?
There might be some pretty standard workflows that are worth adhering to (so you don't have to reinvent the wheel) … but that doesn't mean that you can't add a bit of innovation along the way.
Think about it: There's a pretty standard flow when it comes to online forms on your website.
First, you present the form to your clients. Then, they fill in the information and submit the form. Finally, they're sent to a polite thank-you page to acknowledge the information went through.
It's straightforward and effective.

I’m not the kind of person that has always had that entrepreneurial spirit in them.
I didn’t have a lemonade stand as a kid. Selling Girl Scout cookies involved sending the order form to work with my parents. I ate more of the marching band fundraising candy bars than I sold. So I’m pretty amazed that I’ve built a five-figure online business from scratch.
Have you ever looked at what everyone else is doing and thought there must be a different way…
Maybe you're like me, and you can get a little rebellious when it comes to commonplace marketing advice.
When everyone else is zigging, it makes sense to zag.
That's exactly what this counter intuitive tribe building and email list growing technique is all about. Keep reading.
We love seeing PopupAlly Pro in action, especially because most of the time the results speak for themselves.
That's why we're so excited to be writing this popup case study, especially for anyone who is still on the fence about using popups to build an email list.
Setting up a new popup can be intimidating when you've never had popups on your site before. You want to create something beautiful that increases your sign ups, but you don't want to annoy your readers. Or maybe you just don't know what works best.
If you’re doing any sort of business online, then you likely have some goals for your website… like getting people to opt-in to your email list, or buy products and programs directly.
One of the questions I get asked often when it comes to website conversions is “what's a good conversion rate?”
First, let me define the word conversion, since it can be interpreted in many different ways.
A “conversion” happens on a web page when a visitor decides to take the action that you’ve set a the “goal” for that page.
